this is a well-worn pattern of bellicose threats of north korea's young leader, kim jong-un who warned his artillery and rocket forces have entered a combat posture. the u.s. military is concerned about anything that might destabilize the area. and that he's taking rhetoric where it shouldn't go. and the new provocation plan, but would create a better combined structure between the u.s. and south koreans. and the u.s. is concerned because of advances in north korean long range rocket technology as evidenced by this satellite launch in december. its he row sent nuclear tests and now today's threat to place 20,000 long range artillery units on high alert. the u.s. and south korea are caring out their annual military exercises until april 30th and the pentagon is concerned that after those exercises end, that kim jong-un will be forced to do something provocative to show that these are not empty threats. during the current exercises the u.s. military has flown b-52 flights over north korea. the recent on march 25th, yesterday, according to the pentagon and remember they're capable of carrying
